We had a brief stop off in Santiago on our way heading north; we were really impressed with the city. It has a European feel and it’s surrounded by the snow covered Andes, which make a great backdrop for some colourful sunsets.
We are staying in a great little apartment, which we booked through Airbnb. It’s been great to have a place to ourselves, we don’t want to move on, I think we have relaxed a little too much here.
The city is walkable, we joined the free walking tour and our guide Franco made the tour interesting and good fun, it was a great way to learn about the history of Chile. The Barrio Bellavista neighbourhood is packed with little cafes, bars and restaurants. Don’t forget to try the Pisco Sours when in Chile, nice cocktail. We are really enjoying our time in Chile, making some great memories as we go.
